Top 10 Most Narcissistic Songs of All TimeYou're standing in front of your mirror, singing into your hairbrush microphone, belting out lyrics that make you feel like you're on top of the world. Yeah, you're your own biggest fan, and there's nothing wrong with that, right? Now, picture those moments multiplied a hundredfold. Welcome to the world of the most narcissistic songs of all time. These tunes are not just about self-love or self-empowerment, oh no, they blast that notion out of the water and take it to a completely new stratosphere.
You might be asking yourself, what makes a song narcissistic? Is it brash confidence, unapologetic self-promotion, or the audacious celebration of the self that leaves no room for modesty? In essence, all these factors can contribute to the narcissistic charm of a song. So when you dive into the realm of these self-adoring anthems, don't be surprised to find lyrics drenched in self-praise, artists unabashedly proclaiming their own greatness, and an overwhelming conviction that they're simply the best.
Sure, I have self-respect and give myself a 12/10 rating, but I never said I was a god. I don't even have a sixteenth of all that narcissism. Damn.
I pretty much saw one of Kanye West's songs coming, considering the fact that he's infamously known for saying, "Yo, Taylor, I'm really happy for you, I'ma let you finish, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time! One of the best videos of all time!"
It does sound quite narcissistic to be honest, but I guess you can't judge a song by the title...
Notice how all these songs are from the 21st century...
I actually don't think she wrote this meaning people literally wanted to be her. My take on it is any girl singing it is basically saying "I'm awesome. Why should I want to be like someone else when I can be me?" It is kind of narcissistic as a general song, but I don't think she meant it in a Kanye West "I'm literally the best thing ever" type of way. Just my take.
Meghan Trainor had like three songs that were okay from her first album, so then she comes back thinking everyone loves her. This song is annoying. No one wants to be her. I think this song should be called "How to make everyone who has ever heard of you hate you."
This song is basically about people wanting to be her. I personally don't want to be a bad pop star whose songs are faker than Kim Kardashian.
I actually saw the music video (it was on the TV at the store) and it actually seemed like more of a joke than actual narcissism.
This is narcissistic by definition, but hey, he had proof to back up his claim.
That's what he thinks.
Not to mention, this song is practically Meghan's point of view as if every single boy wants to date her. And she constantly says 'no' to make her look like a girl with high standards.
I don't see how this song is narcissistic. If anything, it's the opposite.
This song makes Kanye West look self-hating.
The Bart Baker parody is much better!
How are they "hot girls" when they look fake? No offense. But I agree with TheEvilNuggetCookie. "Just kidding, we're perfect." That sounds rude! These girls are narcissistic and basically make people look bad to make themselves look good.
"This is why I'm hot / I ain't gotta rap / I could sell a mill saying nothing on the track."
So he basically says: "I am lazy and don't want to do anything. But I am such a great person they would buy everything by me - even if it's literally nothing."
Actually, that's worse than bragging with skills he doesn't have. Lil Wayne called himself the best rapper alive. Despite I am not a hater, he sure is not. But at least he is bragging about doing or being something. What MIMS raps about is that he is basically without talent, but still the best because he is hot. And when you're hot, you don't have to do anything and still be popular, according to him.
By the way, the I of MIMS' logo is the silhouette of German rapper Bushido that he used without permission. It's as if even his logo wants to say: "I am uncreative. But hey, I am hot."
This is why you're a one-hit wonder.
What could you say about this song other than "narcissistic"? Poor composition?
My narcissistic friend loves her music.
I miss the old days of Britney Spears. I may not be a fan of her, but I do think some of her old songs were good. And Pretty Girls was annoying. It's like saying that being good looking is everything when it isn't. This is as annoying as Double Take's "Hot Problems" and you want to know what's worse? I hate both songs, along with other Meghan Trainor, Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Nicki Minaj, Robin Thicke, and 1D songs (why modern pop?! Why?! ).
I'm sorry, but you guys are not the "black Beatles in the city".
I wonder if the actual Beatles themselves had trash rap songs produced by Metro Boomin?
